Be honest in your appraisal of your employer. However, you should not be too critical or go over the top with praise either. Think about the professional value you contributed and gained during your time there and use it opportunity to describe
- the skills you’ve gained.
- a related achievement from your time there
- You should also talk briefly about a highlight of your time with the employer.
So something along the lines of, ‘I very much enjoy my work with XYZ & Co. I’m on good terms with my boss and other members of my department and am a respected member of the team. I still have some good friends there too.
The experience has been valuable for my career and I have learnt a lot during my time at the company – it was a very rewarding experience because I managed a ten that has exceeded targets on multiple campaigns.
I decided to leave because I wanted to move to a company with greater ambitions where I could continue to fulfil my career goals and learn new skills.”
